Vehicle axles

Axles are moving parts, increasing or decreasing the traction strength. Regarding vehicles, axles are always the wheels' final connection. When it comes to rear-wheel drive (RWD) axle traction, the drive shaft is the connection between differential and the wheels. A steel bar that only allows movement in a longitudinal direction when it comes to independent suspensions. When it comes to vehicles with front-wheel drive (FWD), the axles are divided in what are known as "constant velosity joints" that are influenced by the wheels' steering angle. With all-wheel drive (AWD) or 4x4 vehicles that are being driven on very slippery surfaces, or off-road, it is not recommended to start driving at high speed; you should only use the minimum necessary speed in these conditions, because axles may otherwise fail by either cracking or breaking.
